The Heart of Christmas is the seventh book in Brenda Novak’s Whiskey Creek series. It’s a wonderful love story about Eve Harmon. The Heart of Christmas is definitely one of those reads that you will find hard to put down until the end. I loved how Mrs. Novak kept the reader guessing. Readers will love the interesting ending.
Eve is now 35 and dumped with no children. She if feeling left out and feeling down. Then she meets a guy while celebrating her birthday. The story takes off after Eve ends up going to Sexy Sadie's and getting drunk. She spends a night with the handsome guy…one who she’s really not sure of who he is. However, what a birthday this was for Eve. But just who was he? Now there turned out to be a little funny situation, one that had me laughing out loud. What will come of this when she finds out his real name and learns of his past?
I love Eve's friends. They rallied around her when it was needed. Will Eve be able to help him? This is where I say you will have to pick up "The Heart of Christmas" to see how this author will present this tale with a little mystery and suspense. What was up with ghost Little Mary? Be ready for some drama with lots of emotion in this well written novel.
What I especially liked about the novel...
I love the character of Eve who was a very giving person. There were some amazing supporting characters with strong and interesting friendships. Oh and then the wonderful town of Whiskey Creek. Many of the characters were also in the other series titles.
In the end I liked how this author was able to bring out the celebration through love, joy and laughter. Readers feel the true meaning of love and the season.
If you are looking for a holiday read, this festive Christmas setting will be the read for you. I highly recommend this story.
Just call her Christmas Eve…
Eve Harmon has always enjoyed Christmas, but this year it reminds her of everything she doesn't have. Almost all her friends are married now, and that's what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B and B she manages, and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised, suddenly seem…confining.
Eve's worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. There's no one in the area she could even imagine as a husband—until a handsome stranger comes to town. Eve's definitely attracted to him, and he seems to have the same reaction to her. But his darkly mysterious past could ruin Eve's happily ever after—just when it finally seems within reach. And just when she's counting on the best Christmas of her life!
